She was lovingly known by her family and close friends as “Poobie”. Her grandmother, Grace Elliot, whom she was named afer, was responsible for assigning her that moniker.
Poobie thrived in her creative grace. Even as a little girl, she expressed herself through the arts. She loved to sing, dance, draw, write poetry, pen lyrics to songs, and most of all, she took pleasure in painting.
She began painting as an adult; it was both her therapy and her gif to others. She would spend hours musing in thought, sketching, exploring, and tweaking her ideas until her vision came to life through paint on her canvas.

She felt fulflled by nurturing young people as a daycare teacher, workingattheYMCA,andmostrecentlyinWashingtonTownship as a bus monitor. She will be remembered for the unconditional love she shared and the lasting impact she made on future generations.
